Baroque Voices Sunday Concert
Baroque Voices was founded in June 1994 by Wellington-based soprano Pepe Becker. They are a vocal consort which specialises in pre-Classical music written for ensembles with one voice to a part.
Its size varies according to the particular demands of the repertoire for each concert or project. The group has a core of singers with considerable experience in both choral and solo performance, especially in the field of early music. Several of its members have studied in Europe – the director, Pepe Becker, studied singing with Jessica Cash in London and then Baroque Singing with Marius van Altena at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, 1991-93.
These singers are all committed to using appropriate vocal techniques, ornaments and styles, based on what is known about the performance practices, resources and musical ideals of the era in which music was written. Baroque Voices are equally at home in the world of contemporary music, for which the group also has a growing reputation.
